Tucked away on a quaint small street near the Trevi Fountain, Rome's historic sites are at your doorstep. The Archetto apartment has a bright top-floor position, roominess and good layout. It has both a sunny terrace plus a small balcony. There is an elevator.
Just a 2-minute walk to the famous Trevi Fountain you'll be pleased to find a real Roman neighborhood with bakeries, cafes, fresh fruit and vegetable stands, pizzerie, geletaria's and handy access to public transportation.
The apartment is located on the top floor of a small building on a narrow side-street,
With a coveted, sunny top-floor position the Archetto apartment delights with charm and comfort. The roomy living room is furnished with a queen size sofa bed and has a large window overlooking the street, five floors below. The room's decor inspiration is the fresco painting over the sofa, painted in a bouquet of springtime colors. Bookshelves along the opposite wall hold light reading material, guidebooks, a few English language DVD's, remote controls, stereo, and flat screen TV. An upholstered chair, carved wooden armchair and coffee table complete the room. It's the perfect spot to while away an afternoon reading, napping on the sofa or enjoying cocktails before heading out to the bounty of wonderful restaurants that Rome has to offer.
Opening onto the living room is the dining area which seats four. It has French doors two steps up leading out to a Juliette balcony, also overlooking the street down below.
The entry area has an antique bureau, good for clothing storage for guests using the sofa bed, a handy coat rack, and a leather campaign chair, providing a cozy den-like reading area.
The bedroom and kitchen are towards the back of the apartment and are also accessed off the entryway. The bedroom has interior facing windows, it overlooks the backs of other buildings across the way, a huge bonus in the bustling center of Rome. It is a very quiet bedroom, although with the windows open you

Home Away From Home
Spent time at Archetto apt in April 2013 with hubby and teenage daughter. Wonderful, wonderful location. Close to everything and easy to get around Rome on foot. Comfy bedroom, nice living area and convenient dining area. Great to have washing machine, but wish we had a dryer. However a dry cleaner downstairs and next door. Many wonderful restaurants and plenty of shopping. Restaurant downstairs a little noisey, but because weather was cool in the evenings we were able to keep windows closed. If you are an EXTREMELY light sleeper this might become tiresome. After a few nights we were fine with noise and actually enjoyed hearing all the nightlife downstairs. Would definitely stay again when we find our travel takes us to beautiful Roma!! ItalyPerfect was PERFECT. Recommending to all our family and friends!

Location location location!
The Archetto was very all about the location. We really enjoyed our daily pilgrimage to the Trevi Fountain, and to San Crispino [gelato]- it was literally 2 minutes away! We could hear the church bells from the Pontifical college next door, every hour, which was quite transporting. Rosie and Stefano were most helpful with our arrival and there were no issues with the apartment. It was simple, and the beds were comfortable. Even within the very touristy area, we were able to find a couple of really good restaurants- Tamerici and Il Vineria Chianti, which we enjoyed a lot. And did I mention daily trips to San Crispino?!

Great LocationGuest comment entered by owner
Archetto is the perfect apartment. Plenty of room, quiet and is in great shape. You can walk most of Rome from the location. Restaurants and shopping is right out the door. We enjoyed the restaurant Abruzzi (out the door turn right one block turn right again) good sea food. Abruzzi is one of Cardinal Doland 's favorites. We used" Walking Tours of Rome" for a couple private tours, they were excellent. This is the second time we have used Italy Perfect and I am sure we will use them again.

This comes from Baltimore, where we are safely home. I want to thank you again for your services in providing the apartment at Archetto and everything that went with it. Despite days of rain, we had a terrific time in Rome, walked our feet sore, ate well, and always felt full of wonder and appreciation for the opportunity. We left aware of all we could not get to and hopeful to return some day.

Three Coins in a Fountain
The Archetto apartment is perfect for two people. It is very close to the Trevi Fountain and centrally located so you can walk everywhere in Rome. The restaurant downstairs is very good and we ate there a couple of times. We did have trouble getting an internet connection, and after a few tries, Rosie, our greeter was able to finally connect us a couple of days into the week. She did keep trying until she got it to work. Although we didn't have warm enough weather to use the terrace, it was very nice, as well as the balcony. The apartment was very cozy and efficient at the same time. I would recommend this apartment and Italy Perfect to a friend. [We have replaced the internet provider for better connectivity!

We had a fantastic stay at the Archetto apartment. It was just as nice as it looks in the photos. Location was amazing!! So thrilled when we arrived to see how central it was to everything. Loved the pasta-pizza place downstairs, good for fairly inexpensive meals. We threw our 3 coins in the Trevi Fountain, hope to return to stay in this apartment again!

Outstanding!Guest comment entered by owner
The Archetto apartment was everything we had hoped for and more. When the taxi pulled up to the door we were so happy about the location. We walked everywhere. Only caught a taxi once to go to the shopping outlets which were about 30min out of Rome, but worth it. The apartment was beautiful, our greeter was very kind and helpful and marked out our map to show us everything we needed. The restaurant downstairs is very nice and reasonably priced. Being so close to the Trevi Fountain was so much fun for the kids, especially going there early in the morning before anybody else got there. I should also mention Stefano, the driver Italy Perfect recommended. His car service was very professional, friendly and reliable. We would love to return to the Archetto, and would highly recommend Italy Perfect!

We loved the Archetto apartment
We loved the Archetto apartment. It was light and airy and very comfortable. It is clearly 'downtown' Rome and comes with all of the good and not so good that living in downtown means -- noises etc., but we loved it. We walked everywhere (it's important to bring comfortable shoes) and found some excellent restaurants. Pat was very helpful when we couldn't get into the safe (that had our passports!) and Rosie helped with wifi. We would highly recommend the apartment and Italy Perfect.
